My web page for the Empirical Nonsense END project. I used the opportunity to highlight details from my 4heads Governors Island residency It shows a grid of painted walls and nature photos followed by an excerpt from a collaborative poem by Jessica Grim and Melanie Neilson titled The Autobiography of Jean Foos.
A project called END created by Jimi Dams:
"The constant barrage of terrible news reports alongside the closure of galleries, theaters, and music venues because of COVID-19, prompted Empirical Nonsense to invite artists of all disciplines to come together in bringing some inspiration and much needed hope.
Empirical Nonsense launched Empirical Nonsense Daily (END), an online art project, which will run for 365 consecutive days from August 1st, 2020 through July 31st, 2021.
END features a different artist contribution every twenty-four hours for 184 days. The remaining 181 days will be dedicated to curated exhibitions. Through these small acts, established and emerging artists – some of who invited their friends – and artists who submitted their work through Empirical Nonsense’s website, unite in solidarity in an effort to offer everyone a chance to take refuge from today’s strenuous times.
"The artists are on our side! I mean those poets and painters, singers and musicians, novelists and playwrights who speak to the world in a way that is impervious to assault because they wage the battle for justice in a sphere which is unreachable by the dullness of ordinary political discourse.” — Howard Zinn
